Practice your pentesting skills in a standalone, private lab environment with the additions of PG Play and PG Practice to OffSec's Proving Grounds training labs.
With PG Play, learners will receive 3 daily hours of free, dedicated access to the VulnHub community-generated Linux machines.
A subscription to PG Practice includes all the features of PG Play plus additional Windows and Linux machines developed by OffSec experts with unlimited time on targets.

- What are the differences between Proving Grounds Play and Proving Grounds Practice?
- Will you add new machines regularly to PG Play and PG Practice?
- Will Offsec be releasing any other resources such as challenges?
- Are cookies required to access PG Play and Practice?
- What happens when I exceed my time limit to PG Play?
Both PG Play and PG Practice are accessed via the PG control panel. This means you will have access to the same features. However, PG Play machines are generated by the VulnHub community while PG Practice machines are created by OffSec experts.
You also have a 3 hour daily limit for PG Play machine access, while PG Practice allows unlimited access to all machines. In both PG Play and Practice, you will have access to your own machine with no one else to interfere with you.
You may access any of the machines in PG Play as long as you have not exceeded your daily 3 hour time limit. If you have subscribed to PG Practice, you may access any of the PG Play and Practice machines.
For more information on the differences between the two labs, please visit our PG labs page.
New machines will be added every month to PG Play and PG Practice. We welcome and encourage you to come to play and practice on new machines every month!
We plan to regularly add new content to the PG Play and Practice platform, beyond the VulnHub community and OffSec-designed machines. However, we do not yet have a specific date for the addition of other types of content.

When you are in the PG Play free tier and have reached your daily 3 hour access time limit, you will be disconnected from the machine on which you are currently working. You will receive a message that your access has been closed due to reaching the daily limit.
In order to continue playing, you will either need to return after 24 hours or you can choose to upgrade to PG Practice.
